Phoenix Nightly Builds Now Available
Thursday September 5th, 2002
Phoenix (formerly known as mozilla/browser) is a redesign of the Mozilla browser component. It is not related to Project Piglet (also previously known as mozilla/browser), which was forked from pre-Phoenix mozilla/browser code.
UPDATE! Also check out the Phoenix project page which has some more information about the project.
#9 Kiosk Capabilities?

Is any effort going to be made to incorporate the ability of administrators to:
* Run Pheonix in a Kiosk Mode * Allow Administrators to modify and lockdown the interface * Ability to disable context menus * Ability to stop downloads to HD * Ability to block installation of additional components
With this simplified but logical interface, I can see this having a lot of appeal to people who want to run a Mozilla browser in a kiosk or corporate environment but don't want the bloat of Mozilla [Composer/Editor, Mail/News, etc. - Yes, I know most can be eliminated with a custom install but that's just more hassle]. Plus, Mozilla's interface is impossible to secure without some serious hacking of the code to disable interface elements and features. Even a few simple things like the ability to block access to Preferences and Toolbar Customization would make this almost ready for a kiosk environment. Just wondering.
